Working it out!

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Watch a game show host as he demonstrates the size of a cubic metre (100cm x 100cm x 100cm). See how small a cubic centimetre looks when compared with a cubic metre. Estimate the volume of cuboids, such as a packet of food and a tool box. Rotate a 3D grid to help you work out dimensions in centimetres. First work out the area of the base. Then multiply your answer by the height to get the volume. Use a 3D animation of each estimate to improve your answer. Fill in data tables by working out progressive totals of length, width, height and volume (up to one cubic metre).
